there clearly energized by romney's debate performance last night and obama's senior adviser david axelrod praised it as well suggesting it was oscar-worthy, though not worthy of the white house. due to some basic problems with simple veracity. >> i'm not looking for a $5 trillion tax cut. i can't understand how you can cut medicare $716 billion for current recipients of medicare. pre-existing conditions are covered under my plan. an unelected board, appointed board who are going to decide what kind of treatments you ought to have. >> not true, not true, not true, not true. and since mr. romney got the last word at the debate last night, why don't we give the last word today to the president. >> he knows full well that we don't want what he's been selling for the last year. so governor romney may dance around his positions, but if you want to be president, you owe the american people the truth. >> well said, mr. president. let's get right to our panel. in washington form eer communications director and msnbc political analyst karen finney, and in philadelphia professor james peterson of le
continues of the debate, more people would didn't watch the debate will hear about romney's performance. if they are not if romney or they are undecided they will be intrigued that he took on the president and did as well as they have now heard that he did or will hear they did. the criticism being made and you heard a couple of the obama spokesman making it, that romney won because he was so well prepared and had so many practice sessions. that is what we reward people for. >>neil: debate do not have a big impact on the ultimate vote but this year, and you remind me to say it is different, this is a feeling a lot of the president's support is relatively soft, built on shifting sand. a lot of the survivors are disappointed. they would be intrigued by an alternative, as carter supporter s saw. maybe mitt romney is looking less ricky, it is not a matter of him winning over undecided voters but, possibly, possibly, possibly, president obama voters? >>guest: i doubt that will happen. i don't think that is it. >>neil: do you want me to have another ice cream bet with you? >>guest: i was tryi
. so i think romney's performance last night made people say, hey, maybe i don't have to sell right now. maybe i can keep going. that gives a boost to the market. >> let's bring in kenny right now. also, another reason maybe not to sell is the fact that this market has been kind of teflon coated. it keeps grinding its way higher. if you don't have to sell because of potential tax changes, go with the flow. >> i understand that argument. and as great as the debate was last night -- i thought it was actually a tremendous debate for the country to see. i thought they were both very good but i think romney came out swinging very hard, he caught everybody by surprise. no one had seen that side of him. i still think it is a very close race. i'm not sure i, for one, am going to buy i don't have to sell because i think romney's going to win. >> they don't have to sell though right away. they have until the end of the year. we still have the potential after the election to get a sell-off if everybody says those capital gains are huge. >> i think you're exactly right. this morning we tested 1,426
i don't get it. i don't quite get it. i thought romney's performance, let's call it that, was masterful. i don't know what the president was up to last night. your thoughts. >> well, i agree with andrew sullivan. i think he's right on in all his points and i agree with you. romney did -- governor romney was terrific last night. he did all the things he has to do to get back in this race, and i am also mystified at the president's strategy. you know, chris, i'm a good sports fan. in fact, i even do sports tv and i write -- >> i know you do. >> and there's a great sports analogy. when you play the perfect defense when you have a lead, when you try to sit on the ball in basketball when you have got a lead, when you play conservative, what often happens is you lose the lead. and i can't for the life of me believe that that's what they did, but that's the only explanation. they told the president, don't be confrontational. they told the president, be above it all, act presidential. but the one thing that gets me when i was running for re-election as mayor and when i was runnin
. these are passionate things he believes in. he stood there like he was an observer of romney's performance. i could go on -- i got to let you talk. i could go on. go ahead. >> you could go on. we might want you to stand in for barack obama. >> i could do this show alone tonight actually, but go ahead. >> as you have observed, chris, essentially last night two things happened. one is that the president inexplicably bizarrely just failed to show up. and the other thing is mitt romney lied his ass off. now, the white house needs to do something about that first thing. they need to rectify that. but the second thing that happened gives them the opportunity to do that, and you can see them pivoting in that direction today. today barack obama is calling out mitt romney's lies, but your question is a good one. why on earth did he not do it last night? >> by the way, can george custer change -- can he attack co-cheese after the battle? when you lose, you lose, don't you? i think custer had a secret plan but we'll another whoa it was because he got massacred. just a thought. >> david axelrod said today that th
republicans are doing the happy dance today. this was the type of performance that romney brought last night. bill crystal in "the weekly standard" said, romney comes out of the debate with momentum. can his campaign turn a good debate into a true inflection point in the presidential race? so in your estimation, your guy went up against mitt romney in the primary and debates, how does this mitt romney last night compare to the one that your guy debated against and then how does romney seize on this moment to keep up that momentum in the final days? >> well, first of all, i'm not the least bit surprised mitt romney did as well as he did. he did well in the 20 debates rick santorum went up against him. i would also argue one of the big advantages romney had going into the debate was he did have to debate rick santorum, he did have to debate newt gingrich. it is like having a preseason. and the president didn't have that. i think the other key thing that came out of this is the presidential race for all practical purposes actually started last night. a lot of people just didn't know mitt romney
advisers to president obama admit romney did well. >> i give him credit for a strong performance. >> reporter: the debate was one of the most substantive in recent history. now democrats hope to seize on the details to attack romney moving forward. >> are we going to hold the governor accountable for his fraudulent positions? yes, we're going to do that. >> reporter: obama's campaign is continuing an argument that romney will initiate $5 trillion in tax cuts favoring the wealthy. >> governor romney's proposal that he's been promoting for 18 months calls for a $5 trillion tax cut. >> virtually everything he just said about my tax plan sin accurate. >> reporter: meanwhile romney's campaign is pleased. >> governor romney was clearly very much in command of the facts last night and had solutions. >> reporter: hoping to build on that calm, cool confidence that came auto for the first time in a while. we've yet to see how romney's performance will affect his standing in the national polls where he's been trailing by several points. that could take days. in washington, i'm danielle leig
debates. mitt romney performed as if his campaign depended on it, while a surprisingly subdued president obama allowed his challenger to dictate the terms of the debate. from the start, romney displayed confidence and demanding the presence on stage. he oned up the president on his own wedding anniversary shoutout. >> i want to wish you, sweetie, happy anniversary. >> congratligss on your anniversary. i'm sure this was the most romantic place you could imagine, here with me. >> that set the tone as romney seemed to control the tempo. sometimes serving as the moderator himself. >> let's get back to medicare. the president began this segment. so i get the last word. >> you're going to get the first word of the next segment. >> he gets the first word of that segment. i get the last word of the segment. >> it didn't take long for the deep philosophical agreements to come through. first on taxes where the president pressed romney on what he characterized as a $5 trillion tax cuts. >> he's saying he's going to pay for it by closing loopholes and deductions. the problem is he's been asked over
in 2008. governor romney trailing in the polls currently hoping to use his debate performance to narrow the gap. it was the first time the two candidates were on stage face-to-face, a chance for governor romney to one-on-one answer allegations that the obama campaign has been firing his way. one of them over this idea that governor romney is trying to implement a $5 trillion tax cut for the rich. he repeatedly answered that question for president until it finally came down to this. >> look i've got five boys. i'm used to people saying something that is not always true, but just keep on repeating it and ultimately hoping i'll believe it. but that is not the case, all right. i will not reduce the taxes paid by high income americans. >> that is probably as close as last night's debate came to a memorable line. rather than being a selection of zingers it was uncharacteristic lee marked by substance, jon. jon: isn't that amazing, substance in a debate. what about the president's performance, and specifically senior voters and his appeal to them? >> reporter: you know, i think in the aftermat
romney's performance. one guy wrote "who says romney doesn't know anything about domestic work? he just mop it had floor with obama." democrats were dispirited. so one african american gentleman wrote "for the first time in my adult life-- playing on something michelle obama said years ago-- i'm embarrassed for barack obama." >> warner: i noticed from a graphic of twitter it went in peaks and valleys but there was one particular high point and informs the -- during a discussion about regulation. and it was mostly mitt romney. let's watch that. >> there have been 122 community and small banks have closed since dodd-frank so there's one example. here's another, in dodd-frank -- >> lehrer: do you want to repeal dodd-frank? >> i would repeal it and replace it. we're not going to get rid of regulation. you have to have regulation. there are some parts of dodd frank that make all the sense in the world. you need transparency, you need to have leverage limits for institutions. >> lehrer: well, there's a specific. but -- >> let me mention the other one. >> lehrer: excuse me. >> let's mention th
understand -- couldn't understand him. romney stayed on point. he has to perform well in the next debate. >> before we get to the next debate. brian who do you think won last night? >> i think romney won stylically. romm rom made the point he will not raise the taxes on the wealthy. that is false. he talked about lowering the rates for top income folks and corporate rate. one of the things i was saying earlier, i called my aunt. wait a minute, i knew romney was going to privatize medicare and they are leaving that out. if you are issue oriented when you hear romney say i am going to voucherize medicare you are concerned. >> it is not just about medicare, benjamin. he said he will not raise taxes. he will cut spending and cutting spending you take those dollars to decrease taxes. small businesses have been taxed enough. the reason why we have the tea party, we are taxed enough already . the bottom line, obama came up with great friends but 47 million people are on food stampings. >> you seem to disagree with a lot of pundits who said obama didn't do his best last night. romney won hands d
performed better than expected. >> when you see the two together on the screen, romney is kind of smiling and smirking. >> i thought romney would fall apart. >> i give an edge slightly to obama. i think he's doing an effective job, in explaining just what he's accomplished the last four years. >> reporter: less than two miles away at the contra costa county republican headquarters, romney supporters gave their candidate high praise. >> romney needs to be personal, patient, show his plan, and he is. he has to describe how growing the economies will apply to revenues better than raising taxes. >> reporter: one romney supporter told us both men delivered strong performances. >> obama is also convincing that it is a little more freestyle, but still very organized. but i like romney appearing very organized when they first start off. >> i think he'll win the debate and the race. >> i hope. i want him to win. >> reporter: both republicans and democrats we spoke with tonight said the debate is important. but there's there's still a lot more campaigning to do before the finish line. reporting liv
on the debate performance, i do think romney did a better job tonight. >> i think the winner would probably be the president, mainly because he's the one that is the president. his opponent has got to be able to say why he will be better than the incumbent. i don't think that was necessarily done tonight. >> my initial reaction was that mitt romney won the debate. i think it was a good night for mitt romney. >> reporter: someone watching the debate, this 22-year-old student headed to a job recruitment fair instead. >> yeah, of course, it's a job. president obama or mitt romney is not going to pay for my job at this time rather than a recent poll found 40% of undecided voters said the debate would determine. >> how will you vote in november? take our election quiz to help you decide. you will find the presidential election quiz right under the cover photo. watching the debates, we sat down tonight with democrats and republicans. the one thing many people we spoke to agree on. >>> facebook posts that could cost you money. plus, the grim forecast today from hp ceo, and how investors reacted. >
this was over. we've got a horse race. mitt romney, his performance was head and shoulders above anything we've ever seen him do before. >> mitt romney rose to the moment tonight. in a way, frankly, that surprised me. >> it looked like romney wanted to be there and president obama didn't want to be there. >> dan lothian is in denver. morning, dan. mr. obama can't be feeling very good this morning. >> reporter: good morning. well, look, as you just played out in those sound bites, it was a big night for governor romney. some have suggested it was a make or break debate for him. he certainly showed up to fight. and voters agree he got the win in a cnn or flash poll, 67% of the voters said he won the debate. 25% saying president obama won. how did he do it? he challenged the president, never backed down even as the president appeared not to want to push back until the second half of the debate. take a listen. >> i just don't know how the president could have come into office, facing 23 million people out of work, rising unemployment, an economic crisis at the kitchen table and spend his energy
